Do Vampires Have Rules?

Reading Twilight has really done a lot for my interest in vampire culture. One of the things I found most interesting was that vampires sometimes have rules and laws that they must live by. It makes sense that those who have such incredible power and can destroy with a flick of their fingers should have some restrictions placed on them. But then again, how do you enforce laws for those that really can crush whatever comes across their path that displeases them? The whole thing got me thinking, “Do vampires really have rules?’

Well, according to Wiki Answers, yes they do. Wiki only has five that are listed and some of them are written in convoluted English so here I’ve broken them down into simple and easy to understand laws that vampires must abide by.

#1.) Every vampire coven needs to have a leader. Only the leader can order a mortal to be killed or transformed.

#2.) That children, or those who are maimed or injured should never be transformed into a vampire. Any other person who is also not able to care for themselves entirely should also never be transformed into a vampire. This rule, according to Wiki, also states that any person who is about to be changed should already be beautiful. The reason given for this is so that God will be truly insulted once the person has been chosen for the change.

#3.) Choosing a human to change into a vampire can become quite tricky. This is because vampires can either come into their change with great power already bestowed upon them, or with none whatsoever. Because of this, vampires that are extremely strong or have a very strong will should never be changed because they will simply be too hard to tame once they have become a vampire. On the other hand, humans that are much too weak, or have no will, should also not be changed into a vampire as, after being changed, they will simply be just animated corpses.

#4.) The only vampires that are given to permission to destroy other vampires are the leaders of the covens. Even in these instances, coven leaders can only destroy members of their own coven and are not to touch vampires from other covens. In addition to this, it is the coven leader’s responsibility to ensure that they are the ones to destroy members of their covens when the members become too weak or unable to use their own powers any longer.

#5.) Vampires, and everything that goes along with them, is to be kept secret at all times. This includes their existence, any vampire’s name, and the location of their lair. Should a human ever find out any information regarding a vampire, they must be killed immediately.

  3. only number one is is actually ok i guess but still if this is based the twilight saga then you who wrote need to check out new moon the second book in the series and READ READ READ READ READ READ READ READ

  4. Well one thing is for sure: Moonligt, if you were a vampire, you would get killed. These rules are interesting. Aren’t there rules for nomad vampires (a.k.a. vampires not in a coven)?

    1. lol I didn’t write this, we have a few writers on this site ;)
      I would totally kick ass as a vampire :P

  5. there are permanent vampire spells on the website spellsofmagic go to “spells” then “Immortality spells” and find the permanent vampire spells it should say on the side or the bottom of the spell page. It worked for me I’ve done the vampire diaries spells and they’re permanent they even said so themselves and they even have side effects too so that you know they’re working for you. I’ve done 14 permanent vampire spells and they worked for me and they could work for you and they even have a “vampire sun protection spell” too. go to that website and become a vampire.

  6. I know some dampyr’s (half human/half vampire) and their rule or motto is “vampires are born, not made!” There are very few “pure” vmapires that are strong enough to “turn” someone. It is extremely taboo to turn a human into a vampire. You will be put to death. Especially if you turn someone under the age of 18. Many vampires view vampirism as a disease. They would never curse someone with the disease of vampire. They view it the same as intentionally giving someone AIDS. Trust me being a vampire is very difficult. People are misled as to what it is really like. It is not as fun and romantic like on TV. Having constant blood hunger, being tired and sick if you don’t get blood. Having to deal with prejudiced people, sometimes even vampire hunters. I’ve had many vampires tell me that they would never wish their curse on anybody. Not even their worst enemy.

  7. Nobody is ever “turned” into a vampire. The correct term is “awakened.” Most people become vampires during puberty. This is when blood hunger starts. Plus the abilities become much stronger (increased hearing, having speed and strength, some mental abilities ) Awakening happens when a person is told they are a vampire and taught how to live and deal with being a vampire. A person is usually told by a family member. Sometimes a person has no idea they can become a vampire. No one in their family is a vampire (or admits to being one) They are “awakened” by a vampire. A person can decide to live the vampire lifestyle (feed on blood) or reject the idea of being a vampire. Or deny it outright. Or look at the person and say they are complete idiot’s and call the vampire crazy. I know some friends who did this. Said that they wanted no part of living like a vampire. Even though the vampire warned them that they will be unhappy and sick if they don’t live the lifestyle.

  8. Another rule that I have heard from vampires/dampyhyr’s is: NEVER forcefully take blood from someone, no matter how bad the hunger is or how sick you are! This includes biting (very rarely done) or taking blood with a syringe. You must get permisson from someone to feed. (This includes psychic vampires or energy feeding vampires. Although it is very difficult to prove that a vampire stole someone’s energy) Plus you NEVER feed off someone who is under the age of 18. Even if they give you permission. It is a very important job to be a blood donor and only adults can fully understand what it entails. (Plus if you have adults only be blood donors you have less of a chance that a naive Twihead will agree to be a blood donor in hopes to find her Edward love of her life. I have seen this happen and it was awkward to say the least!) Once or twice can be forgiven, but if you make it a constant habit, you will be put to death.
